Utilization in the policy cycle: directions for research.

D. Nachmias, C. Felbinger

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


The study of policy utilization has been unnecessarily confined to one policy stage and to one group of policymakers - high ranking civil servants. This article suggests a broadening of research concerns by including the various stages of the policy cycle and the various policymakers. Utilization plays different functions in different stages and the incentives of policymakers in each stage are guided by self-interest and political-bureaucratic efficacy.-Journal summary
